Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy expressed concern over the "manufactured controversy surrounding the Prime Minister's all-party meet" on India-China standoff held on Friday.

 

CM said that the nation should be united and stand in solidarity with armed forces.

"Concerned by the manufactured controversy surrounding the All Party Meet yesterday. This is the time to showcase our unity and solidarity with our armed forces and not the time to point fingers or find faults," tweeted Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The YSR Congress Party President, who had attended the all-party meet through video conference, said the Prime Minister and other ministers gave very convincing answers.

"PM and other Ministers gave very convincing answers at the all-party meeting. The nation is and should be united on this subject. Unity brings strength and division exhibits weakness," said Reddy.

Reddy said that it is time to showcase unity and solidarity with armed forces, and not point fingers or find faults. 

"Nation is and should be united on this subject. Unity brings strength and division exhibits weakness," said the Chief Minister.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had chaired an all-party virtual meeting to discuss the situation in India-China border areas.

A row erupted over Modi''s reported remarks that there was no Chinese presence on the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The opposition slammed the Prime Minister for the statement and wondered how 20 Indian soldiers were killed if there was no transgression by China.

The government issued a statement on Saturday saying controversy was being created. It alleged attempts were being made to give mischievous interpretations to comments made by the Prime Minister at the all-party meeting.

The government said the "Prime Minister''s observations that there was no Chinese presence on our side of the LAC pertained to the situation as a consequence of the bravery of our armed forces".
